Did I got everything right?

Post by grafiketgrafok » Wed May 06, 2009 4:50 pm

Ok, I did that today... but I don't know if I understood everything correctly...
Here's a redoll of Candestiny's goddess :

Image-----> Image
Base ma petite poupée (site closed) - Base silindor

I changed the position of the body, color dress, shoe type and color, and added props.

Am I too far/close from/to the original? She inspired me a very indian ambiance...

Is she technically correct enough for Clandestiny??? She does such awesome dolls, I feel so ridiculous with my redoll... Do I need to change something else?

In terms of what is required for the project, I think you hit the nail right on the head: there are enough similarities to the original doll, and some stunning differences as well.

I totally love how you worked the headpiece right into her hair (having her hair curl around it) and the new fiery palette of burgundy and orange is both graceful and eye catching. The props and details are well executed without being distracting. I also like how you kept the gradiated gloves pretty much the same (they work well with both dolls).

My only suggestion would be to add a bit more brightness/shine from the flame she's holding in her right hand . . . maybe have it eminate on to her hair & dress a little (not too much . . . keep it subtle). I don't know if this will work, but you could try and work in a little bit of green into the doll (a small accessory or detail) as a nod to the original dress. One more thing . . . I'm having a difficult time figuring out her shoe. I'm not sure if it's because the dress is hiding it, but it looks a bit strange to me. I can see the yellow strap, but I'm not sure what the other yellow part is . . . is it the platform/sole of the shoe?

The above are minor details. The overall doll is fantastic and I'm sure clandestiny will love it. I'm kind of happy to see that you received her name because you certainly knocked this one out of the park (was there ever a doubt?). If I had received her name, I would have fainted with fear! :lol:

P.S. - Sweet sticky buns, you are FAST!

Thank you so much Lazzi for your help, I'll try to improve all that! ^^ I feel so much better now! :D And yes I nearly fainted with fear!!! Which is the exact reason of my haste, I was like "OMG!!! I'll do it now or never!!" And right in the middle I was talking to myself "I'll never make it, I'll never make it"!!! :D

OK!

I made the fire shinier in her hand and got rid of these awful shoes!!! Added some green stuff (color on the dress and prayer necklace - don't know how it's called in english) to match the original dress... what do you think?

Much better! The green compliments the red so well. Lazzi did such a good job already, no CC from me at the moment. I'm just here to 'oooh' and 'ahhh'. :P

YOWSA :!: :!: :!:

I love the edits. LOVE. THEM. The flame in her hand is so sparkly . . . like a jewel! The green rosary beads are a nice nod to the original dress (especially because they're the same shade of green) and the green highlights in the dress? Inspired! You have improved an already awesome doll.

Now go and pat yourself on the back for a job well done! :D

Thank you Chocotini! Thank you so much Lazzi! Your comments were so helpful! I admit I was very embarrassed with the fire part and really wondering how I was going to do that...shiny... but I did! ^^ Thanks a lot! :mrgreen:
